Governor Fallin signed House Bill 1965 making Oklahoma the 46th state to ban texting and driving. The law will go into effect on November 1st and a $100 fine may be assessed. This bill and new law has been named the “Trooper Nicholas Dees and Trooper Keith Burch Act of 2015″. OHP Trooper Dees was killed and Trooper Burch was injured in the line of duty by a driver using a cell phone.

If you do not text and drive, good! If you are tempted to do this dangerous act, think twice! Have a passenger be your ”designated texter” or pull over to a safe spot and then use your phone to text, read email or post on social media.

One of Generation tXt’s motto’s is “it’s not OK to text & drive” and as of November 1, 2015, the law is behind us.

Thank you Oklahoma House of Representatives and Senate!

Representatives voted to accept the Senate’s primary amendment to House Bill 1965! Now the bill goes to the Governor!

After the vote, teen leaders were happy to meet with former Representative Danny Morgan, Rep. Jeannie McDaniel, Rep. Terry O’Donnell (author of HB1965) and Senator Ervin Yen.
